Download PDF for this date

Public memorial services for the “one man Zionist movement,” Baron Edmond de Rothschild of Paris, will be held December 12 at the Hotel Astor under auspices of the Jewish National Fund. Making the announcement yesterday, Rabbi Israel Goldstein, president of the Fund, urged other communities to hold similar assemblies throughout the country.

A special volume of the Golden Book of the Keren Kayemeth Le’ Israel has been opened in Jerusalem in which will be inscribed the name of the late Baron as a tribute to his great contribution towards the upbuilding of Palestine as the Jewish national home.

At the memorial assemblies individuals and organizations will be given the opportunity, by contributing $100 or more to link their names with that of the Baron in the redemption of Palestine land.
